Question about Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 5000
Same here, I exchanged it for a new, working mouse, and all is well.

Go to Control Panel and click on the Mouse icon.
Then select the Mouse button you need to program.
Hope this helps. Bud

Microsoft told me to do a few troubleshooting things -- move usb cable to a new port, run the mouseinfo program that tells you what button is being pushed, etc. When these didn't work, they said they'd send me a Wireless Laser Mouse 6000, version 2. I prefer the 5000 because it's ambidextrous, but a working 6000 is better than a broken 5000, and they don't make the 5000 any more. You should contact them -- the mouse has a 5-year waranty and they started making them less than 5 years ago.
Still, if anybody has figured out a way to open the mouse and clean and possibly fix a broken switch -- which is what must be the problem -- I'd appreciate hearing about it.

press connect on the wireless device...let go and then within 5 seconds press the button on the bottom of the keyboard. Repeat the same steps for the mouse whther its working or not. The problem usually is that the keyboard and mouse are on the same "Wireless Channel" and only resyncing them puts them on a seperate channel, hope this helps.
